Stylin' Cute

Picture 2005 Not so long ago, I told Shayla that I missed Christi so much and that I thought she'd like to be riding home from school with us on a beautiful day with blue skies. She surprised me with her repsonse. She said, "I miss her too. You know what I miss most?" I immediately assumed she'd give her typical response, "I miss always having someone to play with," but she taught me something new with her response.

Picture 2004 She said, "I miss her calling me Stylin' Cute." I said, "What??" Shayla explained after I'd do Shayla's hair or put her in a pretty outfit Christi would say to her, "You're stylin'." Shayla said she'd say back, "You're cute." Then Christi would say, "You're Stylin' Cute," and they'd both laugh. One more treasure I was happy to learn from a little one who knew Christi in a totally different way than I did. One more reason why I MUST get some video footage of Shayla talking about Christi soon, before she forgets special memories of her big sister.

Loads of love and many hugs,

This is one of the cutest Christi/Shayla tidbits I think you've ever shared. "Stylin Cute" definitely describes those two! I pray that Shayla never forgets those special memories.

I can almost picture Christi saying that to Shayla in the picture of them in the pink outfits.... how lucky Shayla is to have had a best friend like Christi.... I only wish it could have been for a longer time.
Hugs and Prayers.

Oh, how sweet is that? "stylin cute". Love the idea of the package tea party. As soon as I decide how many I want I will order. I read daily and still am amazed at Shayla and all she is involved in. One cute, well-rounded little lady she has become. God continue to bless you dear people.

Melt my heart. That was the most precious little thing Shayla could say. Only sisters could have that kinda bond. The fact that Shayla remebers that, it must be important to her. You take care and God bless!
